Where in the World (405)

Answer to edition 404

It was fairly easy to identify the building in last week’s “Where in the World…” as a mosque. To narrow down the search further some readers used the number of minarets as a clue. Of course there were some who recognised the iconic outline of the mosque. Once identified as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (aka Blue Mosque) it is easy to identify the city as Istanbul (formerly known as Constantinople or Byzantium).

Congratulations to Beverley (@bevsackville), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Jon (@SparksJon),  Günther and Ursula (@myVideoMedia) and Atul (@pixodentist) who all identified the city from Where in the World (403) as Istanbul.

This week's "Where in the World..."

This week the distorted image features an iconic building which some would say has played a role in making the city what it is today. Once again, identify the building and you will find identifying the city easy. Beware though, the city is often erroneously called by one of its famous districts.
